Works in the Works - Internet Metaphors and Arabic Translation

In this talk Khalid Lachheb draws on cognitive semantic studies to explore the cognitive dimension of metaphor and the metaphoric structure of internet terminology. This presentation also sketches recent terminological studies that analyze the role of metaphor in scientific communication. Dr. Lachheb will suggest strategies and guidelines to translate metaphorical internet terms from English to Arabic, taking into consideration pioneering work on metaphor in general language.
